A limited number of Bursaries to help cover the fees (all or part of) are available from Yorkshire Ballet Seminars for any students unable to pay the fees for attending our residential courses or any of our other events. Travel costs will not be included in any Bursary.

If you would like to be considered for a Bursary, please write to:  Yorkshire Ballet Seminars, Regal House, 3rd Floor, 70 London Road, Twickenham, TW1 3QS or email info@ybss.co.uk with a brief explanation of your circumstances.

The Director will assess any application for a Bursary taking into account whether a family is living on significantly less than the national average wage and/or in receipt of benefits or income support or is receiving a bursary for dance study from any ballet school. Applicants will have to provide written proof of the grounds relied on. YBS may require provision of tax returns submitted by the family which supports the student, supplemented by a statement of means, before deciding on any application. The Director will refer to the Trustees in any case of doubt before awarding a Bursary and in any cases where he believes that it may be necessary to request submission of tax returns and a statement of means. The Director’s decision is final. 

Bursaries are available as a result of the generosity of a number of Supporters, including:

  • The Anya Linden CBE Bursaries sponsored by The Linbury Trust.

  • The Holbeck Charitable Trust.
